After the discovery of Juventus midfielder Nicolò Fagioli’s betting activity, the same source is now reporting that the former AC Milan man Sandro Tonali also is involved in the scandal.
The reports about Fagioli first broke in mainstream media yesterday and as reported by Corriere della Sera this morning, the Juventus man has admitted to betting on football games but not his own. If found guilty by the FIGC Prosecutor, he could get a ban of up to three years.
According to Fabrizio Corona, the man who first broke the news about Fagioli in recent months, the former Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali and the former Roma winger Nicolo Zaniolo are also involved in the betting scandal (via Calcio e Finanza). How they have breached the rules, however, has not been reported yet.
Update: It is now official.
Milan sold Tonali to Newcastle in the summer for a fee of around €70m and subsequently won’t have to deal with the matter. It remains to be seen if the investigation will find him guilty or not, as the allegations remain reports for now.
